TESTIMONIALS

Anti-Vibrational (UK Purchasing Director)

Our company and QuTec have a long-standing relationship over four decades which continues in strength, year in, year out. What we look for in any supplier is one that truly understands what we need and what we expect. These suppliers are hard to find in the marketplace today, so when they do come along it is important to utilise them. Our Quality requirements have only ever increased throughout the years, and QuTec have taken these on board and continue to work with us to ensure a reliable quality product is delivered into our business on time, every time.

Qutec continue to be competitive, quality driven, reliable and are a pleasure to deal with.

Agriculture (UK Supply Chain Manager)

As an ethical business, we choose and monitor our suppliers extremely carefully. Appropriate supply partners are key to maintaining and developing our business and our strategy of supporting local businesses is an extension of our desire to deal fairly with our key suppliers. QuTec Pershore Ltd have been one of our most important partners for over 25 years.  In this time, they have consistently been a pleasure to work with, being willing to accommodate the ever-changing requirements of a growing SME.  Their ability to offer many different fabrication and pressing methods have been extremely helpful at all stages of product design, development, and production, to ensure cost effective and timely solutions are found and maintained throughout the life of a product. 

I know I speak for my colleagues when I say we enjoy the ability to be able to call up and discuss requests or issues in the knowledge that we will obtain a positive outcome. Overall, we value our supplier relationship with QuTec and look forward to how we can further improve processes and grow our businesses together.
